Summary

If you want to discover the captivating history of ancient Africa, then pay attention...

Africa is the continent where the first humans were born. They explored the vast land and produced the first tools. And although we migrated from that continent, we never completely abandoned it. From the beginning of time, humans lived and worked in Africa, leaving evidence of their existence in the sands of the Sahara Desert and the valleys of the great rivers, such as the Nile and the Niger. Some of the earliest great civilizations were born there, and they give us an insight into the smaller kingdoms of ancient Africa.

As the home of the many pharaohs, Queen Sheba, Hannibal Barca, and Mansa Musa, Africa deserves our full attention. It has stories to tell us and cultural riches to share with us. Africa is where paganism, Christianity, and Islam left their trails and created a cultural fusion that is unique to the continent.

Some modern countries are popular tourist destinations, while others are war-torn lands still unable to industrialize. This polarity of Africa can be traced to ancient times, and the world-shaping events that occurred here need to be studied and understood. 

In Ancient Africa: A Captivating Guide to Ancient African Civilizations, Such as the Kingdom of Kush, the Land of Punt, Carthage, the Kingdom of Aksum, and the Mali Empire with Its Timbuktu, you will discover chapters such as:

  • The Kingdom of Kush
  • The Land of Punt
  • Carthage
  • The Kingdom of Aksum
  • The Ghana Empire
  • The Mali Empire
  • And much, much more!

A timeline of war

I was hoping for details on ancient civilisations, how they dressed, religion, politics, art, literature. What is in this book is a timeline of war, its just a series of person X went to war with person Y, then was killed, their wife went to war with Z. On and on it drones. It also feels like its all about Egypt and then Rome.
